Welcome to RAC's Gallery
We’re open 6 days a week (the gallery is closed on Sunday and Monday from January through March) and admission is free.
Drop by our light, airy first-floor gallery to explore stimulating high-quality art that changes each month.
During the course of a year we display diverse woOrks in all media – acrylic, computer art, drawings, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, prints, sculpture and watercolor.
Our goal is to provide maximum exposure for the talents of RAC members. Six exhibitions include 40-80 works exclusively by RAC exhibiting members … all members and the public have the opportunity to be juried into three other exhibits … and the first exhibit each year features artwork by RAC instructors and students.

Jeffrey Price, owner of Artists' Market in Norwalk, selected the winners from entries submitted by 97 RAC exhibiting members. He says, ““The excitement here is seeing artists going beyond the limits of their medium and using their technique to express something really interesting. In this exhibit one will find not only skillful and beautiful pictures, but also quiet revelations and astonishing excitement.”
Exhibition judges and jurors are recruited from throughout the regional arts community -- professional artists, curators, gallery directors, academics and instructors. Award winners are announced during the free reception for each exhibit.
In addition to the exhibitions in our full gallery, we occasionally present special solo or small group shows in RAC’s Portside Gallery.
